Background & objectives: This study aimed to assess the causes of hospitalization and mortality trend among hospitalized patients in intensive care unit (ICU).
Materials & Methods: In a cross-sectional study, all patients admitted to ICU of the hospital between 2008 and 2013 were investigated in terms of demographic characteristics, reasons for hospitalization and the cause of mortality. The data were collected from patient’s medical records and were analyzed using SPSS 21 software.
Results: 54.8 % were male and 45.2 % female out of the 1520 patients. The patients’ mean age was 56.8 ±26.9 years. The most common causes of hospitalization were stroke (12.8%), cancer (11.8 %) and septicemia (7.5 %) respectively. Most patients died from circulatory system diseases (41.1%) and infections (26.8%). The mortality risk was statistically correlated with older age.
